Now here comes Episode 3.20
10 The guy on Twitter who shared his story of volunteering to be infected with parasite for science.
Good Lord.

9 Dunkin' Donuts will be offering weddings in the drive through this Valentine's. They say we're all nostalgic for good old Loving Love of Valentine's Day but lousy stinking Covid means no fancy dinner with violins and non-plastic cutlery.
So donut love is the answer.

8 Because Coors can't officially run an ad during the Superbowl because Anheuser-Busch has exclusivity, they are going to offer a video/audio experience on YouTube that's supposed to make you dream about Coors products.
They've worked with a psychiatrist to make this happen. Just to reiterate, they are trying to advertise to you in your dreams.
They'll be advertising new MK Ultra beer. Jk!

7 Reddit takes Game Spot stock up the mountain and everybody is intrigued or baffled or angry, or a combo platter of all of those.

6 Rolling Stone's 50 most anticipated movie releases of 2021. I can't believe they're gonna have an average of one anticipated movie per week almost. Are they anticipated because we've already watched everything, and we will literally watch everything!?
I watched the live cats YouTube for an hour yesterday just hoping the cats would walk by the camera once. They were nowhere!

5 Volcano mouse once thought extinct is actually 'doing great' If you've never hear of the Volcano Mouse, I know what you're thinking: "This is a mouse that has lava like venom that can burn through a bank vault in 20 seconds. We need to plan a Volcano mouse heist!"
It's a great thought, but no, the Volcano Mouse is a kind of mouse living near Mount Pinatubo when it erupted in 1991. Scientists thought that those mice didn't survive but hahahaha science, they did.
A study has been published, but we need a follow-up about how they survived exactly. Was it from eating cheese? Can cheese save you from a volcanic eruption? Probably not, but we just don't know!

4 The Subway Tuna Sub Lawsuit Allegations
A lawsuit out of California is claiming that Subway Tuna subs are not tuna. If that's true, what are Subway Tuna subs?
How do I choose sides on this?
If it's false advertising, then a sub shop oughtta be made to tell the truth.
But also, is this gonna be one of those deals where is tuna-ish... like good enough for tuna, and the lawsuit is just getting in the way of me and my delicious sandwich... which may contain goldfish and eel.
The people suing have run tests on the sandwiches and they haven't said what the results were exactly...
“We found that the ingredients were not tuna and not fish,” the attorney said in an email to The Washington Post.
Subway needs to get out in front of this or people will just assume that there's gross stuff in there.

3 "TikToker horrifies viewers by making mashed potatoes out of a bag of chips, and a Michelin-starred chef says the hack is 'ludicrous'"
We live in a time where it is your right to be outraged at anything someone does...
- Wearing Crocs? Outrage!
- Changed your hairstyle? We're all allowed to be offended!!
- Boil some potato chips? You gave me an infarction and I am sending you my ambulance bill.
This guy on TikTok boiled a bunch of Lays Potato Chips (plain) , turned them into some kind of mush, and called them mashed potatoes.
Maybe they're delicious? They were deliciously anger-inducing online.

2 Pink Kraft Dinner! (Thanks for sending me this one)
A bunch of people sent me this one, thanks!
For Valentines Day, Kraft is putting out candy-flavoured Pink Mac and Cheese. It's a promo/ giveaway of a thousand boxes. Check their website.
So damn romantic.
The Cavalcade of Kraft Weird Mac n Cheese Kookiness Continues... if you're keeping score at home, the Pumpkin Spice made a splash, and the Send Noods campaign got more attention than they could've hoped for.

Number 1 Another Proud Canadian World Record
Calgary teen Max Ganakovsky, a teenager from Calgary, got on his bike, did the longest manual ever and got into the Guinness Book of World Records. The longest manual is like a pop-a-wheelie, except you're on your bike, you pop a wheelie, and then you coast... you don't keep peddaling like we used to when we were kids (we called that a Catwalk).
Ganakovsky coasted on one tire for 648 metres, almost double the old record.
Now I'd like to play the Canadian National Anthem to show how proud we all are of Max.
